BOCA RATON, FL – The Boca Raton Museum of Art’s latest exhibition is, “Sri Prabha: Resonator-Reanimator,” on view from June 14 to October 22. Sri Prabha, the mastermind behind these site-specific installations, combines ideas from Vedic Eastern philosophies with his visions of Western science to explore human connections to the natural world. The result is a psychedelic multiverse of saturated colors that aims to remind viewers of our interconnectedness and the need for collaborative efforts.

The multimedia presentation has abstract, patterned digital projections of light that dynamically transform the walls, enveloping paintings and sculptures in ever-shifting organic forms. Accompanied by meditative sounds, the overall ambiance encourages visitors to prepare their minds for introspection. Within this state, viewers will encounter references to the smallest and grandest elements of the universe. Spiraling, pulsating shapes reminiscent of microscopic views and twinkling flashes of light akin to telescope sightings invite contemplation. One interactive element, titled “Spaceresearchcentre,” allows visitors to enter a teepee-like structure where they can meditate amidst video projections and gentle flashes of light on the fabric walls.

Sri Prabha, currently based in Fort Lauderdale, was born in Hyderabad, in 1969, and has been living in the United States since 1978. His work reflects a keen interest in contemporary environmental issues and how humans interact with nature. The exhibition is curated by Kelli Bodle, the Associate Curator of the Museum.

Sri Prabha’s artistic prowess has earned him recognition, including being selected as one of the winners of the 2022 Art Basel Miami Beach public art showcase by the City of Miami Beach. His monumental installation, “Cosmic Occupancy,” captivated audiences with its spectacular light projection orb.

To gain further insights into Sri Prabha’s artistic process, viewers can watch a PBS Television profile about the artist. His works have found homes in several private collections across Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami, New York, Washington, DC, and Copenhagen. His exhibitions include prestigious events such as the Florida Prize 2019 at Orlando Museum, Verge Art Fair New York, King County Public Arts Program Seattle, Art Palm Beach, South Florida Cultural Consortium at MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, and the Toronto Art Fair, among others.

The Boca Raton Museum of Art, founded by artists in 1950 as the Art Guild of Boca Raton, has evolved over its eight-decade history to encompass a Museum, Art School, and Sculpture Garden. For more information about the exhibition and the Boca Raton Museum of Art, please visit bocamuseum.org.
